A card that SHOWS a Hummingbird flapping its wings!

Welcome to the North Carolina Blog Hop!  Or as we call it:  NCDemos!  If you ever want to be a part of the best group, join Stampin’ Up! and live in North Carolina!  We get together Quarterly and have the best time!!

Today I am sharing with you The Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called You Move Me!  This set at first glance isn’t all that exciting, BUT when you see the card in action, you can’t help but get excited!!

I am sharing with you a video that shows the card in action!

Isn’t that fun!!?

I used the Mini Treat Bag thinlit with the New Powder Pink cardstock!  Berry Blast was used as an accent color!  I also used the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape at the top of the Whisper White insert
(5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″). This card is super easy once you cut out the Mini Treat Bag, just cut out the shutter part before you put it together!  Then stamp the Hummingbird image using two colors of inks ( I used Fresh Fig) full strength on the bigger image, and then used Fresh Fig on the smaller image (line up head and tail!) but stamped off so I got a lighter color!  I thought it would be MUCH harder to do!  It’s always great when things are easier than they look!

I also used the Fresh Fig Ribbon at the top to help in the pulling up of the inside!

Blog Candy is available if you comment here on my blog (anywhere as many times as you want!), FaceBook, Twitter or Instagram!  That’s all you have to do to be in the drawing (held July 4th), that’s a pretty easy way to earn free goodies!!

This is what you will be in the drawing for:

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me??  I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time!   Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!?  Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page!  To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!!  🙂

The theme this month is Baby.  My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!!  That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!??  Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered!  I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one!  I love how the dog has such puffy fur!  Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!!  Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!!  You can’t see them, can you!?  That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears!  I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?!  Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:

How many NEW stamp sets can I get on a card? Plus Blog Candy!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene!  Of course I had to start making my own!  And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!

I wanted to use the Bike Ride,  have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water!  High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water!  And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying!  Birds!!  For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD!  🙂

I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair!  That is such a fun set!  Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets!  They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!

Here is my card closed:

Cute, right?!!

Here is the card partially open:

There’s the chair!  And now open all the way:

I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!?  Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think?  Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself!  Do you ever do that?

The Deets:

Cardstock
Bermuda Bay:  4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun!  LOL  For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle!  Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun.  Sheesh!!  I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!

Now, on to my Blog Candy!!

It’s Washi Tape!!  These are from (lf – rt), Affectionately Yours and Botanical Gardens!!  Yes, these can be yours!  I am running this blog candy starting yesterday (since I said I would!) until July 4th!  I think that is a great day to be giving something away for FREE!  Celebrating our Freedom in a way!

Bumpy Bike ride near the Mountains

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up!  Of course I had to give it a try!

I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:

I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.

I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though.   This gave the Cardstock the bumps!  They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks!  I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression.  Came out pretty didn’t it!?

I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color!  I also stamped the basket in it!  The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!

Here is the card:

The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies.  Oh! And my favorite the rocks!

The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:

I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL!  I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!

The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″  And scraps for all the cut outs!  This was a really fun card to make!!  I love how you can make so many different things  be on the bike!  Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today!  I have more Blog Candy to give away  on here tomorrow!!  Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!

Birthday Delivery Fox is Very Sneaky!

Today I am going to share with you a card I am making in this month’s classes!  I just LOOOOOVE this new stamp set Birthday Delivery!  The best part of this set is that the thinlits cut out the stamped image AND the image printed on the DSP!! (Designer Series Paper)

If you are in a hurry and don’t want to stamp and color an image (it doesn’t happen very often!) you can always just take out the DSP and cut your image out of that!  Stampin’ Up! has made it so simple to do a fast and easy card!

Here is the card I am doing in June’s class:

Isn’t he cute!!??  I used the Watercolor Pencils to color him in, and the Blender Pen to smoothe it all out!  This is my new favorite way to color!  No more streaks!  No more worrying about putting too much ink on!  Those pencils makes my job in blending so much easier! You HAVE to try them out!

I used the new punch, Pretty Label to stamp the Surprise! on and it fit perfectly!  I used the Brick Wall embossing folder to make the ‘house’ part of the card and I used the Hearth and Home thinlits to make the window!  Using Window Sheets the same width of the ‘window’ makes this look like a real window!

This is an impressive card, but it really is so easy!  I hope you enjoyed this! Click on any product picture below and you will be taken straight to my online store!!  When you place an order with me, I will send you a handmade card AND a small gift to let you know how much I appreciate you!  Please use this Hostess code when ordering: C62FFAR3

Catalog Launch Prize Give-away using Colorful Seasons, now to make one for me!

Last Friday, I had my Catalog Launch Party and I had two Prizes that those who attended could win!

The first one uses the Birthday Delivery bundle!  LOVE this bundle, it is so much fun to play with!  Did you know that the thinlits not only fit the STAMPED images, but also fits the images on the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP)?!  It’s so versatile and you KNOW I love to get more from my stamping dollars!

I LOVE how the Chef has his can that will spray out the words “It’s your big day!”   Isn’t that so cute!  The balloons are fun to add, I had to ‘fussy cut’ the bear but it was super simple.  I’m sorry to say that I gave this away BEFORE I measured it!  I ‘think’ it was 8″ x 10″.   I made it on Thursday and I had a winner for it on Friday!  For the grass I sponged using Old Olive with a mask giving it that great wavy look!

For my other Prize I did a take on a card I made in another post:

I loved how this came out, and decided to see how it would look framed with all the seasons!  I have to admit I was soooooo excited when I was done, and a little disappointed that I had to GIVE IT AWAY!  LOL  I used Dazzling Diamonds to make the water sparkle, especially on the winter one to make the water look icy!  Here is a closer look at each Season:

The water is icy and the chair is sparkly with Dazzling Diamonds!

The trees are just budding with leaves and the Chair is in Pristine condition!

Summer time!  The sun is shining! The blooms are out!  The chair is a ‘little’ dirty, but we have that iced drink so we don’t care!!

Fall is here!  The leaves are changing!  The chair is almost ready to be cleaned for the end of the season!

Here is the full view!  Notice the Dazzling Diamonds background paper?  The measurements for this beauty is 11″ x 14″………..which is why I had to add the strips of Bermuda Bay.  Can’t have a place that has a seam!  There’s only ONE seam, but for symmetry I put two strips in!

For this Colorful Seasons framed art, I took off with the given name of the set……..Colorful SEASONS!  I chose to make four scenes but having the scene stay the same but change it up to see the Seasons!  I had a blast making this!  I used Lovely as a Tree to be my backdrop, and the best thing is that you can make this stamp set look different just by using markers!

Dimensions:

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315, 12″ x 11″ and 12″ x 2″
Bermuda Bay ( Brights Cardstock pack) #145409, 1/2″ x 11″ x’s 2
Basic Black #124267, 12″ x 9″
Bermuda Bay (see # above), 11 3/4″ x 8 3/4″
Seasons:
Pool Party (Winter) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Pink Pirouette (Spring) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Berry Burst (Summer) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler (Fall) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

All Seasons are on Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″, ‘frame’ is Pool Party 5 1/4″ x 4″ with a 1/2″ cut out on inside all around.

Water is Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay for all seasons except winter which is Soft Sky and Whisper White.

Trees are colored with markers:  Tree trunk is all Early Espresso, Leaves are Old Olive (spring and summer), Fall is Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

For the water I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make the water sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds on top.

For the winter tree branch thinlit I used the White Gel pen (retired) to make snow on the top, with Dazzling Diamonds over it to make the branches be snowy!

That’s it for the Dimensions!

I hope you like this post!  This took me a couple days to create but only because I had to think it up!  Once started, it took a couple of hours.

I will be making one for myself as soon as I am able!  I will probably take this to the winner on Monday so will have to make one before then, just in case I need a life size reference!!

I have my Blog Candy to give away TOMORROW!!  Wow, that went fast!  You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!

Black and Gold meet up with Eastern Elegance, all I can say is WOW!

I had a class yesterday and we made three cards, one of which I am going to share with you today!  I was inspired by Priscilla Ivler.  I LOVE getting ideas from others and tweaking it a bit!

Here is the card we made:

Isn’t it stunning?!!  It’s not a ‘hard’ card, you just have to work on getting the thinlit to let go of the paper without ripping it.  My Die Brush has seen better days and the bristles are falling out!  Yay!  We get a new one in the NEW catalog!!

Here is the inside:

Everyone at class loved it!  And in person it is even prettier than here!  I know it’s hard to believe!

This is going to be a quick post today, if you want the dimensions just let me know and I will send them to you!

Don’t forget about my blog candy!!

Gorgeous Eastern Beauty card!

I was inspired by Daniela Hödl  when I made this card!  She made this stunning card:

Since I had to translate her blog I wasn’t able to see what size the original was.  I didn’t do the entire part that she did, but when I do a scrapbook page this is what I want!!

So, here’s mine:

And the inside:

Ok, I said I was inspired, but I ended up doing it  totally different!  BUT now I have the other one on my computer to do another time!  🙂

I added pearls to some of the front, they are on the outside of the Medallion and in the middle and right smack dab in the center! It’s hard to see in my picture…….

I used 2 of the New In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  For the Berry Burst, I stamped on scrap THEN on my card (this is called stamped off), this gives the Berry two different hues!

The ribbon is #144135, so on June 1st you can order it!   Hostess code for this month is:  97H62RVK   IF you order from me, I will send you a NEW Catalog!  Only US citizens can order from me, so if you need a recommendation from me, I know of a few that might be around you!

The stamp set is: Eastern Beauty #143675
And the Thinlits are Eastern Medallions #143725

Again, if you order from me, I will send you a free Catty!  PLUS a special something in the mail!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  Did you forget?!  I have BLOG CANDY!  This is what you can win just be commenting on my blog or Facebook Page-TedderBearStamping :

ONE entire package of this Beautiful Glitter Paper, plus MOST of another one!  And if that’s not enough, I have some cutouts that I am sending plus a card that I made using this!

Another Stained Glass Card with At Home With You

I posted earlier that I was going to use this stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, but I changed my mind!  I didn’t think, when I was finished with it, that it yelled MASCULINE. So I am sharing it with you now!

Yes! This is the one that I told you about with the stained glass that came out even better than how I did it in the past!  I touched the one that was drying before it was ready so I had to start all over.  I don’t want to pray for Patience because I really don’t want to practice it a lot!  🙂  I’m not very good at it!

To start off, I scribbled on a piece of Window Sheet with some of SU!’s markers.  I then placed little circles of the Fine Tip Glue Pen over the scribbles and the colors bled and create a really cool pattern!

I used Cajun Craze and Dapper Denim.  See how it marbles?!!  Once dry it is see through with the colors showing through what looks like an antique stained glass!!

Once it’s dry………..it takes  time, it’s probably a good idea to leave it overnight so you don’t mess with it!  Trust me!

Once the door is cut out with the thinlit, place the Window Sheet down on the back side (the side that opens).

NOT sure why I took this picture of the door UPSIDE down other than to get a better picture!  Can you see the two colors?!!

I have magnet strips on the door between this layer and the next which will sandwich the Window Sheet so you won’t see it.  I placed magnets under the inside of the door (under the saying too), so when the card is standing the door won’t flap open. It makes it snap together.
Here is a picture of the other side of the door attached so the Window Sheet is between them:

It REALLY looks like Antique glass, right?

Here is a pic of the card:

Can you see the dog and the cat cuddling together?!  I put a piece of ribbon between the door and the ‘sandwich’ so it can’t be seen other than the part I want to help open the door.

Here is the door open:

The welcome mat is stamped and then I cut fringes in the layer under it so it looks like a mat!

I would love to hear what you think!  Too much?
Here is a picture of the inside:

I love the dog basket!!

That’s it for today!!  Hope you liked it!  Subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss anything!!

Don’t forget that I have Blog Candy!!  Here is what you can win:

Just leave a comment here or on my Facebook Page TedderBearStamping, I am doing the drawing on the 15th of May!  Only 3 days left!  Each and Every comment you leave (on any post!) will be counted!  Good Luck!!
